  • CLUB HEALTH: HEALTH CLUBBING

    This project reexamines the typology of the Health Club by mixing it with that of the Dance Club on the site of a large-scale development at the intersection of two subway lines in Manhattan. It is a test, a question, a challenge - a proto-typology. CLUB HEALTH: HEALTH CLUBBING This project is a...


  • self-plaigarism: what's occupying my time

    The space under study is my bedroom, in Highland Apartments, number B31. It's on the third level of a building whose first is half sunk into the ground; that is, it's one and a half storeys up. It has one window, on the northeastern face, to the side of which is the next apartment block, shifted...


  • update

    The previous chair has left, and in her wake arrive a team of visitors from Europe and beyond. Spirits are high, it seems. Our student body has increased ten percent, with the addition of thirty-something Tulane architecture students, ranging from first year to thesis. One was put in each...


  • Writing as entry to the rhizome: does existentialism count?

    :Anyway, you should be typing; I've only been here a week. :That's not an excuse. Typing is a basic skill. You- we're not going to sit around here and wait for you to figure it out, either. :Well who's typing now? :I don't know. :Then who's dictating? Who's talking? :You stop talking - and don't...


  • Parsons Product Design

    Here are some snapshots of that work which will lend itself more readily to photographic representation. The diagram is simple: tension (rubber bands) on the inside, compresion (laminated wood) on the outside, the whole assembly creating a layering of membranes with various types of openings...

  • Milk Day, or, Another Cornell Architecture Tradition Goes Sour

    Today was Milkday... Milkday is like any other chugging competition, but... its participants are all Cornell Architects! This may be all the explanation the event needs, but for those who don't quite get it, I'll provide more explicit imagery. First, it is important to know that all competitors...


  • COOLhaas lecture

    Rem Koolhaas spoke last night. This morning, the Cornell Daily Sun ran an article so awful it inspired me to write my own... Of course, attendance was plenary. Kennedy hall had reached maximum capacity an hour before the lecture was to start. At T minus forty minutes, it was announced that He...


  • cigarrettes and european urbanists...

    ...are our favorite addictions. you can never get enough.


  • mid-term all-school confusion

    If you can imagine the expression on the face of one of those lizards sunbathing in the Galapagos, and then imagine a room full of them criticizing student architecture, you probably understand what Cornell's midterm all-school review looked like. The attendance was lizard-like: all with wide eyes...


  • Project Architect Symposium

    Saturday was the much anticipated project architect symposium. Scheduled... to start at 9:30am and run through the day, this epic lecture marathon boasted on its line-up members of such firms as the OMA, H+dM, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Morphosis, and Frank Ghery Partners. That, certainly, was...


  • Common Sense - a productive culture of dissent

    The air around us has gotten a little warmer, and it seems students have tapped into this boost in energy and gotten a bit fiesty. Tomorrow there is a meeting, called by Mostafavi (new dean) with the students to discuss potential venues for change and... improvement in the school of architecture...


  • thus it starts

    One week into the semester, Rand Hall is brimming with half-empty coffee cups and half-full architecture students; the grey slush outside the door is spotted with cold cigarette butts; everyone is one semester older. Our new dean has painted all the doors â€&ldquo...
